Malawi, a tiny country in Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the world’s poorest nations. Since 2005 Neighbours Aid has partnered with Malawi NGO Shekinah Education Foundation for Orphan’s Relief and Development in establishing a children’s home for orphaned and vulnerable children, two primary schools, a high school, medical clinic and farming initiatives. A poultry farm and hardware store ensure that the project is moving towards self sustainability.
“Every effort I made to place children brought to the home with extended family or guardians who are assisted with education, food and healthcare.”
Each year leaders’ seminars which include healthcare, HIV/AIDS and nutrition are conducted in the villages. Nambour Christian College staff, high school students and parents participate in a bi annual trip which involves undertaking a practical project and classroom activities with the staff and students of the schools. Neighbours Aid partners work closely with Social Welfare, Education and Health Department officials in Malawi.
